Jane Wooster Scott entered the millennium prepared to establish new records. She concluded the last millennium named by the Guinness Book of Records as the most reproduced artist in America, beating out runner-up Pablo Picasso for that distinction. Today this versatile and productive artist stands alone as the finest painter of Americana art, prints and posters on the planet. Her works hang in museums, in public buildings and private homes in Europe, Asia and South America as well as in the United States. She has become legendary for her exceptional scenes of America s celebrations and holidays, providing a trove of visual lore unlike any other.
Her paintings trace the cavalcade of the American experience. From her studio in Sun Valley, Idaho, Scott continues to discover new venues, celebrated traditions and everyday pleasures and beauty in this land of boundless joys and effervescent cultural diversity. In the years ahead, this dedicated artist will scour the country’s nooks and crannies finding unusual, colorful panoramas of life, some typical, others rare and some so commonplace they go unnoticed by the casual observer. Wooster Scott has an unfailing eye for the charm and magnificence of her native land and paints art, prints and posters in her own breathtaking style for the ages.
Youthful and energetic, and possessed with an aura of glamour, the personable Wooster Scott is as much at home among celebrities as she is with the ordinary folk who populate her art, prints and posters. Indeed, she has become a celebrity herself. She mingles comfortably with scores of stars, political lights and sports figures at her shows. She is in demand socially wherever she finds herself. Scott is all for progress but laments the toll it takes on the landscapes she paints so poignantly.
